It sure is addictive! I should be sleeping but I'm too excited. I just removed my daughters car seat and checked my tire pressures. Now I'm going to bed.

You were missed. It was a fast course.

Ron(strayBullitt) did great. He finished third in ESP right behind me. The first place car was on R spec tires, so I felt we did real well considering we are on street tires. We also got to see an EVO 9 blow his engine, good times.

The Evo looked slow the whole event, and sounded like it was gargling rocks.

I hope this works. Here is a crappy iPhone video of one of my autox runs.

Haha. That was cool. Looked like a pretty clean run. Hopefully the Go Pro is a little better quality. I can see where that video could be a very useful tool...

It was fun. The go pro video is much nicer, I just need to figure out how to post it to my youtube account.

Lmao. I just watched that vid again. You can hear me in the background when you stopped to pick up your time slip. Peggy? is commenting about my "on the verge of impending doom" driving style over the loud speaker. Lol. I'm sure glad I can't hear that while I'm driving. Good times!!!

Ha! Yeah, I can't hear anything but the engine and tires when I'm out there.

I also agree that video can be a very helpful tool to aid in improving lap times.

I can see by your vid that you are a smoother driver than I. I'm throwing the car around a lot. It would be fun to get video from both cars and do a split screen, time synced video. It would be interesting since both our cars and our times are relatively close. I'll have to work on getting a Go pro...

I agree, that would be cool to compare fastest runs and driving styles. You could probably just get a mount for your phone and save some $.

American autocross also runs at Marina. It seems, from their website, that they set up a track that is more suited to our cars. Same price as UFO, only they claim, time permitting, to give you 5 laps. Once a year tech inspection. And they run both Saturday and Sunday. Their next event is this weekend the 6th and 7th. It looks like this event and one next month are the last two this year. What do you guys think? Should we give them a try?

That sounds awesome! I'm working this weekend, but I'm down for future events. I'd prefer a course that's made for muscle cars.

I would be a definite maybe for this weekend as well. Lol. I have a pinched nerve in my back so I'll see how it feels by then. We should all try to make it to one before their season ends though. What do you think that your chances of making the UFO event on 7/21 are?

Unfortunately, I don't know if I can make it for that event either. My parents are throwing a birthday party for my grandma that day, but I can see, what time do their events start?

The one on 7/21 is a UFO event. We are the very last group to run, so the afternoon sometime. After this weekend, the next American autocross event is. Ooops. Looks like this is the last event for American this season. 7/6 and 7/7. It's now or nothing. Your just going to have to call in sick. Lol.
